Nigerian actress, Chacha Eke who recently hinted via a video few days ago on her readiness to split from husband, Austin Faani Ikechukwu has finally revealed the reason for her statement.
In a new video shared on her Instagram page on Wednesday evening, October 7, the Ebonyi State-native said she is diagnosed with bipolar disorder (a mental illness), hence, the reason for demanding to quit her marriage.
She went further stating that her mental illness was confirmed by several psychiatrists who visited the First Delta American hospital, Asaba where she’s currently receiving treatment.
She however advised that bipolar is real even though it’s being neglected in Africa so much that people don’t know about it.
Chacha said; “Five days ago, I made a video saying that my marriage to Austin Faani is over. And that video came with a lot of backlash from people, with many insinuating that it’s because of domestic violence.
“It’s not domestic violence. Austin has never raises his hands on me. He has never even raise his voice at me. And God in heaven knows that’s the truth.
“I’m here at First Delta American hospital, Asaba receiving treatment. Several psychiatrists have come to assess me mentally and I’ve been diagnosed of bipolar disorder.
“Bipolar is real. Here in Africa, we tend to not know about it due to ignorance or overlooked.
“I cannot tell you all how I have been feeling with this tiny tiny videos that I have been making, but I will however show you emotion pictures soon.”
Chacha, born Charity Eke is daughter to Ebonyi State Commissioner for Education, Professor John Eke. And she has been married to Austin Faani for 7 years with 3 children under their care.
